    June 15, 2019 - Been coravining a glass here and there and last night while cooking dinner I decided to open the bottle and finish it before my guests arrived (nothing like a head start). Similar to the previous bottles I have consumed with a nose of dark fruit, the palate is dark berries, some pipe tobacco, olives and dried thyme. Finish is moderate. This was the last bottle of a half case that I bought back in 2010. When I went looking for it in the tracker to write this note I noticed that I have 2 bottles of the 1996 so I will tag them for Thanksgiving.

    April 15, 2019 - I don’t know if this has a bad cork or what - disappointed. Wet forest floor, old newspaper, funky taste. No good.

    March 18, 2019 - A little flat to begin ... was much better after several hours. Softened on the palate and nose more pronounced. Lacks the earthiness I like

    March 9, 2019 - No ponits, as tiny hints of cork was detected. Anyway a very classic Bordeaux.

    January 31, 2019 - Just not enough fruit and too little of everything. Disappointing.

    (Château Phélan-Ségur (St Estèphe)) This vintage seems very dense and withdrawn on the nose - and this seems quite typical, as the majority of the 2005s I have tasted recently are showing in this manner. But there is a reassuring tone to the fruit, not evolved but not straightforward either, with tinges of complexity, and with a black-liquorice density to it. The palate is very harmonious and well formed, with supple fruit laid over a very fine-boned structure of acid and tannin, which seems in total harmony with the wine. This has a super composition, with nothing out of place, coming across as quite harmonious and compelling . As I return to it later it seems even more and more aromatic. A brilliant effort.

    (Château Phélan Ségur) Dark red violet color; toasty oak, pain grillé nose; tasty, plush but tart cassis, red plum palate with the Cab Franc showing; medium finish (49% Merlot, 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc)

    (Chateau Phélan-Ségur St Estèphe) This has a very dark hue, and lovely, aromatic, dense, dark and rather gravelly fruit. The palate has a rather pure character with an appealing leanness, and a raft of attractive red fruits presented in a direct, very well defined frame. This certainly has a pleasing nature, backed up by good extract and substance. There is a lot of stuffing for the cellar here. Very good indeed.
